Didn't know what to expect going in. Similar to When a monster calls, but source material was around first. Not overly depressing, but draws you in. Girl was very good in the lead, you believed her take on her situation.
We went into this blind, and ended it with tears and blinded in a different way. The emotions in this movie are impressive for anyone who has battle their own internal demons with sick loved ones. Get the tissues ready...
It looks like it would be a great sci-fi fantasy, but it isn't. Be ready for a tear-jerker for anyone who has been bullied. Totally worth a watch, if only because it does a really good job of highlighting how to survive being bullied.
